If you haven't heard yet, there's a Hip-Hop movement rumbling through Philadelphia, and they're quickly becoming the most talked-about rap clique in the city's recent history! ICH GANG is a fully-contained conglomerate of crazy spitters. Perhaps since the rise of Wu-Tang Clan 20 years ago, there hasn't been another group that can each stand on his own like members of ICH GANG. When they unite, it's a force something like Voltron!

Kidd Kidd recently stopped by Philly and linked up with HipHopSince1987. He talked about how Lil Wayne discovered him. He talks about how he got on the "Mrs. Officer" record over 2 Chainz. He talks about signing to G-Unit back in 2011. He breaksdown the story about how Sha Money gave him a beat with 50 Cent on the hook, he finished it, and 50 Cent was impressed by it.

"Throughout the episode we are forced to focus on the emotions of our characters as they are often portrayed alone, and in most cases sitting. The spotlight is put on each of our characters as solo shots whether they are in dialoge or not. SCATTERed sitations and thoughts are often circling them as the background imagery oftne symbolizes here. I immediately thought of SITstill and the overall theme of DOWNtime when seeing this episode and wanted to pay homage to both. Though often sitting, as simple as it (and each scene) seems, often there is so much more sitting with us."

Black Milk has released his newest full-length solo album, entitled No Poison No Paradise. Already regarded as a contender for Top 10 lists for Best Albums of 2013, NPNP exemplifies Black's evolution and growth as an artist. Created with the intent of having a more relaxed, calmer, and darker vibe compared to his previous solo album, NPNP still incorporates his signature sample-driven production style full of hard drums and melodic synths but pushes his refined narrative ability to a new level. Today, Black shares the special iTunes-only bonus track, "Poison." Says Black, "This was the last song I made for the album. It's a short song about the main character, Sonny, waking up out of his dream and trying to make sense of it all."
